Grey beach

August 02, 2014

This summer I'm in New Zealand visiting my relatives down under. It's winter here and I'm missing summer in Europe. But as compensation we're having a stopover, can you guess where? Yep, Japan! While I love visiting my family I always look forward to Japan, it brings back so many memories.

You probably didn't know that I used to live in Japan, in fact I lived there for close to 5 years. It was a fairly formative time, my early teens. It's where I really developed my passion for drawing and became quite enthusiastic about drawing manga (none of it was very good). I also picked up the culture and habits and it did help shape my personality. It's the sort of place that feels both familiar and completely foreign at the same time.
